Did all of that already. Cutting off the stretched out ends of the spark plug cable. That's automatic. Replaced the spark plug cap with a new NGK (at only a few bucks each I have several kinds on hand), compression is very good.

Using my spark tester, I'll show spark when it is bone cold. And it runs great. Then it stumbles and dies. Tester shows no spark at all when the coil is warm. and the engine won't run I've seen this many times on old electromechanical ignition cars and on motorcycles both with electromechanical and CDI ignitions. 40 year old coils don't do well when they heat up.

I'll have the answer for sure next week. Lot of not-wrenching going on until then.

Thanks for chiming in.
